Malvern, PA-In an effort to connect the community of Chester County with transportation issues, and congestion mitigation projects, the Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC) has partnered with VISTA Today.
VISTA Today (www.vista.today) is the newest media outlet in Chester County. It is a community-driven online news hub publishing short, informative stories celebrating Chester County’s economic development, culture and community.
VISTA Today was developed in partnership with the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) as a complementary project to the Council's ten year strategic development plan released in October 2014. The strategic plan, named VISTA 2025, lays out a county-wide vision for long-term economic development. VISTA Today, on the other hand, is the strategic plan's day-to-day counterpart, telling the County's story as it unfolds every day.
With readership currently growing at a rate of 20% a month, VISTA Today wants to provide their readers with a wider variety of current business and economic development content. Understanding that transportation is a major driver for economic development, VISTA Today contacted TMACC to get insight on transportation issues in Chester County.
TMACC Executive Director, P. Timothy Phelps, feels the partnership will be a great benefit to the community: “TMACC receives and processes an expansive amount of information on transportation projects for Chester County, as well as regional projects, that affect people’s daily commutes. Utilizing VISTA Today as a media partner will allow TMACC to distribute updates quickly.”
“It [VISTA Today] is a different media outlet. It’s new, it’s relative, and it’s positive. This is where the county’s most influential decision makers get their Chester County news,” said Ken Knickerbocker, publisher of VISTA Today. “I used TMACC in the past to receive transportation updates, and they are always accurate. Relying on accurate sources of information like TMACC expands our news topics, which will help to provide readers with a one stop source for all news in Chester County.”
